The Flag of the Hispanicity (Spanish: Bandera de la Hispanidad)[i] is a flag sometimes used to represent the Hispanic people or Hispanic community.[1]

Symbolism

The Flag of the Hispanicity displays a white background with three purple crosses and a rising sun.

History

The flag was designed by Ángel Camblor, a captain of the Uruguayan Army. He was the winner of a contest organized by Juana de Ibarbourou in 1932. The flag was first raised on Independence Square of Montevideo on October 12, 1932.

Alternative use as the Flag of the Americas

The flag is also sometimes occasionally alternately used to represent the entire geographical area of The Americas and not just as an ethnic flag of the Hispanic American people.[2][3] The flag was officially adopted as the Flag of the Americas--in this usage representing besides Hispanic Americans also Anglo-Americans, Franco-Americans (the Québécois, Haitians, Guadeloupians, Martininqians, and French Guianians), Luso-Americans, Dutch Americans (the inhabitants of the Dutch Antilles and Suriname), and Greenlanders--by all member countries of the Pan-American Conference at their Seventh Assembly in 1933.
